Pacific Resources for Education and Learning has embarked on a journey to build literacy-focused high-performing learning communities--defining high-performing learning communities as organizations that have: shared vision; challenging curriculum aligned to instruction and assessment measures; a culture of continuous learning and improvement; parents and community as partners in the learning process; and supportive school structure. Pacific educators have identified these three critical issues: reading, assessment and accountability, and professional development. Goals are that children will be reading independently by Grade 3; schools and communities will have better information about how well students are learning; and teachers and administrators will improve their teaching and learning skills by focusing on student achievement. Noting that creating high-performing learning communities takes time and collaboration, this brochure describes results, relationships, and process. (NKA)
